Just a reminder, I will be appearing on RedState’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Friends tonight at 9pm.
Panel is me, Leon Wolf of RedState, Neal Dewing of The Federalist, Becket Adams of the Washington Examiner, Bill McMorris of the Washington Free Beacon and JeffB of the AceofSpadesHQ Decision Desk.
So it’s been a very long time since a podcast. A very large portion of that is on me. We’ve had multiple illnesses (pneumonia, upper respiratory infection and stomach bugs) go through the Cochran household. Plus, I believe I’ve mentioned before, my wife went back to work full time for the first time in 8 years. We were just about to get used to the schedule and how everything was going to work……and then the rug got pulled out. The school district decided that there weren’t enough kids at my wife’s school to justify that many kindergarten classes. So they decided to send my wife to a different school and she’s now teaching 3rd grade.
Yeah…..that was a lot of fun. We’re finally starting to get settled down and comfortable with everything again. So AtC and I talked the other day and agreed we needed to buckle down and get back on the podcast horse. You’ll be seeing new episodes from us shortly.
In other news, someone has made a grave, grave mistake. Success!
Alright folks, it’s October. That means playoffs and we got a lot of games in a short amount of time already. Let’s dive straight in, shall we?
AL Wild Card Play-In
The Houston Astros (yes, you read that right) beat the New York Yankees 3-0 to advance. Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel, pitching on 3 days rest, threw 6 shut out innings. Sipp, Harris and Gregerson each went 1 to complete the shutout. The Astros move on to face Kansas City.
NL Wild Card Play-In
Cubs vs Pirates. Yup. Cubs vs Pirates. The Pirates never really had a chance here. Arrieta was dominant in a complete game shutout. 9 innings. 11 K’s. 5 hits. 0 walks. 0 runs. Thanks for coming. Cubs head to take on division rival St. Louis.
So, someone was crazy enough to invite me on as a guest.
Wiserbud of The H2 has a show on Saturdays. He invited me on to talk some politics.
You can find me at 40 minutes in on hour #1.
Special Edition Saturday
And yes, we will be recording a new episode of the podcast.
